A Bureau document released Friday reported that for fiscal 1969-70, the Usu system showed a deficit of $943,000 in residence Halls operations. If the Usu had correctly accounted for dormitory heating costs the auditors continued the loss would have been $1.23 million. The deficit conflicted sharply with figures issued Friday at the Usu Board of regents meeting in la Crosse. Robert w. Winter Usu assistant director for business and finance told the Board that residence Halls operations showed a net deficit of about $333,000 for the 1969-70 reporting period. He forecast a 1970-71 loss of about $140,000. The legislative audit Bureau which was critical of Usu accounting procedures said its audit showed six of the nine campuses operated below the 95 per cent room occupancy break even Point. The Bureau reported that the fiscal 1970 loss would be partially offset by $618,000 in excess reserves from state building corporation Bond issues. At the la Crosse meeting Winter countered that corrective measures already were being taken. He recommended that the regents increase the Cash balance in the housing account to $745,000 by 1972 to cover increasing costs. The Cost of operating residence Halls at the nine Usu campuses he said was $11 million. Winter said the Large deficits were caused by an increase in non resident tuition thus Cut Bills to require annual sessions of the legislature and to remove All exemptions to the state to fair housing Law have been co authored by state rep. Manny Brownd Racine. The annual sessions Bill Brown said is similar to one introduced earlier in the Senate. The Assembly Bill would require also that state budgeting be on a one year rather than a biennial basis. A othe two year budget Monkey business is too much a Guesstimate and leads to too Many political decisions a Brown said. The fair housing Bill would remove the present provision dents and complicated management practices with diffused lines of authority. He recommended that the Usu director of residence Halls be Given Overall responsibility for All phases of housing operations including finances. That state auditors agreed. Winter added that manage practices had been revised and Cost controls established. Which exempts properties of three or fewer dwelling units from its jurisdiction and would revise the state statutes to conform with Federal Law.
